the democrats are saying and mr. cummings will say in a minute is that we-- quote-- cut 300 million. the vote that reducedly what the president had asked for, which would have been an increase was 149 democrat tolz 147 republicans, and quite frankly, it was, in fact, sufficient. we've been told that. you can't always look to money when there's money sitting there. there's $2.2 billion in discretionary reprogrammable money that wasn't used. the fact is, they are making a decision not to put security in because they don't want the presence of security. in our hearing, and in testimony, we were told they removed their diplomatic plates because they wanted to be invisible. they didn't put any markings on this building that was attacked because they didn't want have 2 have people know they were there. that is not how you do security. after there was a 12-foot hole blown in the wall of this compound, all they defense rebuild the wall, no new reinformat, no kind of capability to protect somebody inside. now, it happened to be an ambassador that was killed, along three others. it could have

with state in which the -- mr. cummings is representatives with there. we asked these questions. this letter is based on specific allegations from whistle blowers, confirmed by the regional security officer. and then put into a letter. so they're not allegations by us. they're actual statements by individuals who were on the ground, both in tripoli and benghazi. and we are pursuing this on a bipartisan basis. to be honest, mr. cummings was helpful when i called him and asked for this interview with the regional security officer. and he helped make it happen the same day. so we do have a working relationship. we do not often sign on to letters. partially because that can take several days. >> and what about -- >> the letter is -- >> i just want to ask you, sorry, a final question about the timing of this. obviously, it's important to know who knew what, when, and if the ball was dropped. i don't know if there is any american, republican or democrat, who would disagree on that. but why ahead of the presidential election -- when you yourself said sometimes it takes time to get the final

going to meet with mr. cummings whom i also respect. it may not be a public hearing. i would prefer a public hearing but i'm a freshman and i defer to chairman issa. i think i'm going to have an opportunity to ask ambassador rice. i would prefer it be public because the people were also misled. it wasn't just congress. you can mislead me that's fine we are not very popular. it was the american people that were misled and i would like to have a public hearing on what information she relied on. remember she didn't say i'm speculating or this is my hunch, she used the phrase, in fact. that has meaning. carney used the phrase concrete evidence. i'm a former prosecutor. that means a lot to me when you throw those terms around. the reality is they didn't have fact or evidence. alisyn: you made the point yesterday that words matter in this case. congressman, are we getting too bogged down in the misleading message? should we be more focused on what went wrong on the consulate, why our security was so inadequate and what we are supposed to do about the fact that there was a terrorist attack o

start the report but then -- in an accurate manner. elijah cummings is the ranking member on that same committee said what mr. issa has put out there was contradictory information. there was testimony. by various people that he tried to put out one side that had been contradicted by others. that's not the kind of information or the kind of unity we need when we're trying to figure out what took place in benghazi as the president is trying to do. the president is giving information as he receives it and as accurate as he receives it. there is no reason, stephanie there's no reason in the world that the president of the united states, that the secretary of state or anybody in the president's administration would have to try to lie or say anything different about what took place. we're all -- everybody who -- every american should be all -- hurt and devastated by the loss of lives that we had in benghazi and all of us should want to be patient and get the truth and then go after those individualsĂș that committed those horrendous acts against us. that's what wreshed be as americans.
